Hi everyone, I'm a long-time lurker and I thought I'd finally get an account here after all this time. Lately I've been going through my vinyl collection and ripping them, especially obscure stuff that never saw a release on CD or any digital format. I was also largely inspired by coming across obscure New Wave and synthpop stuff on various blogs, only to be disappointed with the audio quality with the downloads they provided.

So with that in mind, I'd like to share a rip I made of The Vels' first album from 1984, Velocity. It's encoded as 256 kbps AAC files, but I can provide this as 24-bit 96 kHz FLAC files if anyone wants!

Hope you all enjoy and there's more coming!
